Support for the Higgins Family

Hello Everybody,

We come to you for the Higgins Family. As many of you know, Pete Higgins passed away on the morning of June 3rd, 2020. Pete was a loving husband to his partner Becky, a devoted father to his children Catie, Jane, Quinn, and Mickey, and a star faculty member at Princeton Day School. Today we are reaching out to the PDS community, to those who care for Pete’s loved ones, and to anybody whose life has been impacted by Pete, to give back to his family. 

Catie is a student entering her senior year at Oberlin College. Mickey (‘23) and Jane (‘22) are in high school at PDS, and Quinn (‘23) attends the Newgrange School, where Becky also works.  

All funds will be used for funeral expenses, medical bills, to ensure that Mickey and Jane can remain at PDS, and, additionally, to finance the continuing education of Pete’s children. Given the financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on the economy and the fact that Becky Higgins will now be the sole provider for her four children, any donations would be much appreciated and immediately used for the aforementioned necessities. We are asking out of love. 

We are in the midst of a pandemic, our country is coming to terms with racial injustice, and the future is unknown. To move forward in any endeavor, we must act with loving compassion. We know that everyone is going through hardship, trauma, loss, and grief during this time. We understand that every penny counts. 

We want to be there for the Higgins Family in the same way that they support, uplift, and love each of us. Pete Higgins was loved by so many different people. He was a coach, a role-model, a mentor, and a friend. Pete was an inspiration, and his legacy will continue to live on.

Regardless of what you can donate, we ask you to remember three things as we move forward in this uncertain world: “Show up! Have your stuff! Give an effort!” - Pete Higgins

Love, healing, and blessings to all.

Thank you so much for any and all support. We love you.
